Gus Bilirakis: Sorrow for Katrina victims?

Although some of my best friends are of Greek heritage, I must admit that it seems that Gus Bilirakis represents the citizens of Greece instead of Americans. Of course we care about the fires in Greece but does Gus Bilirakis care about the Americans still suffering in New Orleans? Does he care that the levys are not ready for another hurricane? Does he care that victims are still homeless? Does he remember the people who died in New Orleans?

Maybe Gus Bilirakis should hire me to do his press releases. After all, I have to correct them almost daily now:

"As a member of the House Subcommittee on European Affairs Congress, Congressman Bilirakis expressed his sincere sorrow over the devastation in Greece New Orleans by stating, “My heartfelt condolences and prayers go out to the families and friends who have lost loved ones in this horrific tragedy. I commend condemn myself and the Bush Administration for allowing this tragedy to continue and recognize Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis and the Greek government in their that efforts to rebuild the levys and homes, especially in the 9th ward, have been shamefully mismanaged and unevenly funded." get these blazes under control.” Congressman Bilirakis added, "The unity and solidarity of the brave people of Greece New Orleans that has arisen from the ashes of these fires flood waters is representative of the Greek American spirit and pride that so clearly defines this nation."

Will Gus Bilirakis sign the petition?

We, the undersigned, urge the United States Senate to pass Senator Dodd's Gulf Coast Recovery Bill of 2007 (S1668) to assist the Gulf Coast region in rebuilding the infrastructure lost after the Katrina and Rita disasters.
Passage of this bill is an important step towards returning the Gulf Coast residents to their homes.
